Review: Honey Ryder – Love in Time

Honey Ryder are Martyn Shone and Lindsay O’Mahony, and have managed to gain themselves a Radio 2 playlisted track in the shape of “Choices”. Their new single, “Love in Time” is a cover of a relatively unknown Roy Orbison track, and as such it should have stayed really.

It’s perfectly accomplished, just a bit bland really – perfect for the Radio 2 audiences, who like their music to be, well, “safe” and not that original, not too daring and sounds like something a bunch of session musicians have dreamt up. It’ll do well, but that’s probably in part due to the team of people they have behind them – their album was mixed by Brad Gilderman (Madonna, Outkast) and Bob Krauswaar (Pet Shop Boys, Robbie Williams) and a personal mentor in the shape of former EMI CEO, Eric Nicoli.

This isn’t to say it’s rubbish, oh no, far from it. It’s just a bit, well, paint by numbers.

4/10

Honey Ryder’s new single, “Love in Time” is out on Monday 13th July 2009.
